Hi, I acquired a second hand Samsung DV5000 / DV80M5010QX clothes dryer which has a series of faults.
The main problem is the motor shaft (fan drive side) where it has dropped, making the fan spin at an angle and caused damage.
I've been searching for a bush or bearing online to replace whatever should be supporting the motor but am having touble finding anything.
Any ideas what I should be looking for?
Thanks for the link (I did check it out) but the issue is I do not know the correct term for the part I'm looking for and even if I find what could be a matching term, there are rarely images to make an informed decision on it! What I really need is an exploded parts diagram of the dryer, to select what part I want...
i would recommend contacting one of the links below they maybe able to help you better
I appreciate your help but I am quite capable of fixing it myself, I just hoped someone here might be able to identify the part. I'll likely pack the gap with layered rubber strips wrapped around the motor housing where it passed through the mount to keep it in place, unless of course someone can suggest a part for it..
Regretfully the mods are not qualified to offer any parts suggestions, however, the parts website that @GaryB82 offered also sells a service manual that would have the exploded view you mentioned.
